The park is home to a gorgeous 90 foot cascading waterfall. There are hiking trails, a pioneer village, petting zoo, train rides, campground, and chapel. The park was bursting with activity when we went. The leaves were just hinting at changing. The day was truly wonderful.
Legend has it that the park was originally known as Black Creek Falls. It was renamed by an Indian chief in honor of his daughter, Noccalula. Noccalula was being forced to marry a warrior from another tribe. She begged her father to let her marry her true love, a warrior from her tribe, but he refused. On the day of her proposed wedding, Noccalula went to the falls and took her life by jumping to her death. Her father was grieving for his beloved daughter and so renamed the park in honor of her.
The chapel sits next to the falls and is stunning. There was a beautiful bride there getting her pictures made.
